Rocky Mount, NC

"Beverly Walker Spain, 76 of Rocky Mount passed away Thursday, February 15th. Beverly grew up with two sisters and one brother. She enjoyed going on trips with them as well as her mother and father. She married her husband Jimmy in 1965 and together they created a life full of love with their two daughters. Beverly is survived by her two daughters- Melissa Goff (Allen) and Jamie, her sister Jackie Turner (Ray), and her four grandchildren- Cody, Bryson (Justin), Laney (Nate), and Collin, her aunt Mamie Ester Weaver; niece, Wendy Shumaker (Dave), nephews Donny Pridgen (Lisa), and Chad Pridgen (Cinde), several great nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends are left to cherish her memory as well as her special neighbors of many years, Kim and Ken. Lastly, Beverly is survived by her special great-grandsons who were the light of her life- Wadelee and Walker who she so lovingly referred to as Squirt and Smiley. Beverly is preceded in death by her husband Jimmy, her parents Christine Winstead Walker and Linwood (LD) Walker, her brother Wayne Walker and her sister Cathy Pridgen as well as her niece Kristy Stonestreet. Beverly enjoyed spending time with her family, going out to eat (to Pups and Rustic Roots specifically), reading a good book, watching the Young and the Restless, and taking a long nap in her beloved recliner. Her family was her pride and joy and she loved to talk about them with anyone she met… However, no one compared to “Squirt” and “Smiley.” Shopping at Belk with her grandchildren (specifically Laney!) was Beverly’s very favorite thing to do. Two days before she passed away, Beverly was fortunate enough to do just that- shop one last time at Belk with Laney and her sister Jackie. Beverly’s family is thankful for the wonderful care she received from nurses and physicians since her cancer diagnosis in November. They also would like to thank her sister Jackie and brother-in-law Ray for opening their home to her and for being Beverly’s full time caregivers the last several months. Beverly’s family would like to encourage everyone to donate blood as they are able. Blood transfusions prolonged Beverly’s life and she was always grateful for that. A visitation will be held at 1:00pm on Sunday, February 18, 2024 at Cornerstone Funeral Home. The service will follow at 2:30pm in the chapel. Burial will follow the service at Rocky Mount Memorial Park."

She was a lady in all her ways. Marie enjoyed working with the youth and adored the elderly. Later in life, Rev.
